Forward officials announce furniture sale
Forward Township has office furniture it can offer to help clear the way for demolition of its former municipal building.
At Monday's board of supervisors meeting, Supervisor Dave Magiske talked about the building known as well as the old Axleton School along Bunola River Road at Liggett Avenue near the bridge into Monongahela.
Old chairs and desks still are there from the years when the township used the building. He said anyone interested can call the township's current administration building and ask to see it.
“There's too much in there for insurance to cover,” secretary Karen Stetor said after the meeting.
The two-story building was acquired by the township in 1969. It sits on a 7,211-square-foot lot.
According to the Allegheny County real estate website it has an assessed value of $242,700 including $220,400 for the building.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
